The Science of Brain Health , The Care of Angels
Guardian Angel Homes has the finest Independent, Assisted Living, & Memory Care homes in the nation! We are one of the first in the industry to embrace a truly unique approach to Brain Health and Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care by incorporating The Enhance Protocol® into the care of every resident.
The Enhance Protocol® is currently offered at the Richland Washington location. It is coming to the Hermiston Oregon, Liberty Lake Washington, and Post Falls Idaho locations approximately October 2021.
The Enhance Protocol®: Far Infrared Sauna
The Far Infrared Sauna emits a dry heat between 90-165 degrees Fahrenheit that:
• Modestly increases heart rate
• Stimulates the circulatory and lymph systems
• Elicits sweating
By doing this, it is improving circulation and oxygenation to the brain. It is also helping the body get rid of toxins and cellular waste that could be impacting cognition. An Infrared Sauna is able to do this at a lower heat than traditional saunas, making it accessible to people who cannot tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna.
Individuals may experience the following benefits when participating in infrared sauna therapy:
• Modest increases of core body temperature, improved physical performance, increased endurance and enhanced physical health due to improved circulation.
• Cardiovascular benefits, particularly the lowering of blood pressure by reducing arterial vessel stiffness.
• Sauna therapy may improve ejection fraction in congestive heart failure and reduce mortality from cardiovascular related events.
• Sauna therapy can help stimulate the formation of mitochondria and can stimulate recovery and longevity pathways in our DNA.
• Heat from sauna therapy can have a robust benefit in our brains by improving circulation, blood flow to the brain, and by stimulating relaxation.
• Optimize production of Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), activating the brain to build new neurons and new neural pathways.
• Stimulate the production and release of growth hormone and improve bone strength, muscle growth, and longevity.
Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue versus simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins versus only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
